WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A former Sedgwick County jailer will serve three years’ probation for sex crimes involving inmates at the county jail.

Fifty-year-old Kenneth Reese was sentenced Thursday for crimes he committed at the jail while working as a detention deputy in 2012 and 2013. He pleaded guilty last month.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1tDTSiM ) Reese was arrested in March after two female inmates reporting having inappropriate sexual contact with him. He was originally charged with eight felonies but some of the charges were dropped when he pleaded guilty last month. He was a 14-year veteran of the sheriff’s office when he resigned in February.

Reese would face 32 months in prison if he violates the terms of his probation.
